Welcome to the
Mud and Muck Society
Scroll down for the latest Mud&Muck news

We are an Archaeological Surface Collecting Team working in Central Connecticut and New England.

Thanks for taking the time to visit the Mud and Muck Web Site. We are a small group of friends, amateur archaeologists, and surface hunters of artifacts. When we meet as a group, we share finds and keep records. We also take digital photos of our finds as part of this process, thereby allowing us to share them with you herein. Of course, life's responsibilities, time constraints and weather conditions determine our looking time which has become less and less these days. We try to wait until most if not all members have made finds before we meet. Many areas we have looked in the past have been lost to the changing of times.
Unfortunately, the laws of our state do to little to protect archeological sites before they are destroyed and information can be gained. It is however our hobby of passion and we will continue as long as possible to build an informational website and database. A special thanks to our webmaster. Please feel free to contact us or visit our message board.
